Dudley Archive’s get involved in Full Circle Community film search

Dudley Archives & Local History Service

Dudley Archives & Local History Service are excited to become one of the 60 partner organisations in the Midlands that will take place in the Heritage Lottery Funded Full Circle project. 

“Dudley Archives and Local History Service holds over 1 mile of original archive material, including business ledgers, maps and school records; more than 80,000 books and pamphlets and around 18,000 images, relating to Dudley borough.”

 The Archive is now on a hunt for previously unseen films hidden away in the Dudley communities.  Archivist – Gillian Roberts  expressed her delight in participating in the project which she feels will be a great way of getting members of the Dudley Communities connected with their screen heritage. 

The Archives are often involved in many local projects – and are interested in preserving the heritage of their community through both Oral and Visual Historical Records. The areas covered by Dudley Archives include Stourbridge, Halesowen, Brierley Hill, Dudley and Sedgeley. All have very distinctive histories and would be a great place to start searching for old film.

The Archives will act as a point of contact for members of the community wishing to get involved in Full Circle and also as a collection point for people wishing to deposit film.
